The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, whether accurately or not, is an interpretation of Jungian typology that presupposes that individuals share common cognitive dispensations, which categorizes them into one of sixteen possible personality types. Contrary to inaccurate information on fan-based MBTI websites, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator does not purport that individuals will fit nicely into one of the sixteen personality boxes. In reality, individuals even of the same type may have significant variance in both behavior and cognition. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, however, is not designed to capture this variance. Due to this, individuals may mistype due to overlapping with some behaviors of another type. Moreover, not only can this happen but it is extremely common to mistype.
